    I did a lot of substituting in this recipe because of what I had on hand. But with Pad Thai it’s all about the sauce. The sauce is delicious! We both loved it. I was just happy that I had vegetables that lend themselves to Asian cuisine. Will certainly make it again. Maybe next time I’ll have the correct veg.

    Fantastic! I doubled the sauce and it was a bit too much for me.

    I know my thai food and have made this before. Look elsewhere for better one. it should be richer sauce, thicker sauce and less sugar with a more peanut flavor.

    Very tasty and easy to do. Next time would put less sugar

    Great dish, i added more fish sauce, lime juice and chili to spice it up! Amazing! 👍👏

    Excellent dish. Simple enough to prepare; flexible enough for substitutions (certain ingredients are harder to get now) - added some molasses, omitted the sprouts, used plain flat noodles in lieu of the standard asian rice noodle. Reasonably kid friendy ... not nearly as many leftovers as I had hoped. Give it a try.

    Good but it could have been more sauce and the dish was missing a little spice. Used sesamoil to cook the chicken.

    Added some Thai Chile’s and Thai basil and doubled the sauce recipe like others recommended! Also used half veg oil and half sesame oil instead. It was a delicious dish and there were no leftovers!

    Second time we have made it and both times have been a hit! The sauce is great and the recipe is pretty easy overall.

    It was a hit. The family enjoyed it. I’ll be making this one again. I added a little chili oil for a little extra flavor.

    It was pretty tasty I added a little extra sweet soy sauce and I felt like that added a little more flavor

    Tasted delicious! We preferred it a bit more sweet and sour, so added a little bit more brown sugar and vinegar.

    Easy and delicious! I added some melted peanut butter drizzle to add a little more of a nutty flavor.

    Overall, great pad thai recipe! Much closer to authentic than others I've tried to make. Added chili oil and Sriracha to give it a kick.

    Very bland - I doubled the sauce but it still wasn’t quite right

    Texture and composition is great. Could use a bit more or zap though, e.g. actual pepper.

    I listened to the advice given and doubled the sauce; it was very tasty and I will be making it again:

    Sauce was very lime/vinegar flavour and didn't taste very good. Ended up just putting pre-made sauce

    overall this came out good... it was needing a bit more flavor we will try and add a bit more the next time we cook. i didn't use the red bell pepper and we used chili sauce to make it spicy.

    Not quite the pad Thai taste, but still perfectly good

    Not quite as Thai spicy as I expected but it was all eaten so no problems there. Maybe a little more chilli. I think doing the eggs separately and then adding at yhe end would be better than scrambling them in the vegetables.

    it was quick, easy and i added other veggies like cabbage and mushrooms. my 2 kids had 2nd helpings of this. definitely saving this recipe!!!

    Pad Thai turned out great. Great flavor but could be a little spicer. I subbed baby bok choy for bean sprouts because I don’t like them.
